    Invoking the Iranian beast will not help Israel in its present predicament because the danger to Israel is in the new front that Palestine has opened at the UN. Israel must reconcile itself to Palestinian statehood or lose its most favored treatment by the US. The only way for Israel to preserve itself as a Jewish-majority state is to recognize the Palestinian state and regulate its relations with it on a fair and civilized basis. That is the only way to keep the Palestinians outside Israel’s borders, as a child of five can tell you. The US is not going to oppose the whole world to please Israel or the Lobby. Our economy is going downhill, the people are disgruntled and are questioning our economic model. We are losing the leadership of the world. We can’t even swing Britain any more. Getting mired in Israel’s petty quarrels will only expose our disfunctioning political system and we cannot afford that. Even a fool like Obama can see that.
